DIY Wrapped Journal

By Teresa Cruz aka Andor Violeta


“Hello everyone, 

We are already starting a new year, year!! It’s time for many starts, including, new planners, new journals, refreshing our hopes and dreams… and nothing is better than use the collections that you love to go with you in this new 2020 adventures. 

So, I love to prepare my own planners, notebooks, journals, I can show you some:



We never have too many planners or journals, because we need them for so many purposes, and it’s a lot of fun to use beautiful planners to inspire you!!


So, this month I made a Wrapped Journal, with one of the new collections that I absolutely love, the Dreamland collection.




These wrapped journals are very very easy to make. For this one, I used and really like the Eileen Hull wrapped journal die (Sizzix). You can pick your favorite papers, your Graphic 45 chipboard, and if you have pick a journal die, and you are ready to make your journal cover. Just see my youtube video at the end of this post to see how to make your own wrapped journal!!




Tip: use your chipboards and stickers to make your paper clips, embellishments and tags on your journal, simple and easy!!




I made four notebooks for the inside, some pockets, cards, tags, stickers, papers clips... it’s super fun to create and embellish with all the products that Graphic 45 have with each collection, just pick your favorite and have fun creating!! 



Tip: you can make your own tag with a card and two stickers, or one sticker fold in half.









To learn how to make your own wrapped journal just click on the link of the youtube video tutorial, I have all the process and a flip through in the end. 

Hope you like it and find it useful and fun. 


Here is a full video tutorial.

I really love this wrapped journal & would love to make one. My Sizzix die has been waiting for this inspiration. The video was excellent & I love the papers even though I had previously thought I wouldn’t have a use for them . Thank you Theresa.

I'm going to watch your video right now. I bought this die recently, but haven't finished a whole project yet. I'm not sure how sting it all together. Your journal is gorgeous--I LOVE that paper collection. I am interested in how you did so many things in your photos. THANK YOU for doing a video. Hopefully I will find out exactly how to do this. Wondering about how to cut the chipboard for the markers, etc. THANKS AGAIN. Great job!! I'm now looking forward to using my G45 papers, stickers, etc. with this die.
